An Update & Happy Holiday Wishes ...

Remember in March when the 82 year old driver collected me with her 1989 Toyota Camry as I was crossing the road ... well the saga continues?

XRays showed my right arm wasn't healing. Back to hospital for another surgery, a new heavier plate inserted, nine fat new screws, a healthy dollop of fixative and the magcal addition of a protein powder to encourage the arm to make me 'bloggable' again!

Now six weeks on ... Doc says not to 'sling the sling' that holds my arm aloft, strangles my neck, constricts my shoulder ... healing's taking longer.

I constantly remind myself how fortuntate I am. How I'm alive, with a beautiful family, with a sense of humour, and it's only my arm ;)

Those who know me get my frustration ... as an inpatient, intolerant, Virgo, typing lefthanded isn't a consideration ...

BUT I needed to let you all know ...

I loveyouse all, miss so many of you and am sending truckloads of wishes that we 'shut the gate on 08 and shine in 09'.

I'm glad to see a post from you.

I'm sorry about your arm.

It sounds very painful and inconvenient.

Red, sorry to hear healing is taking longer than expected. I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday season and a happy and healthy new year.

Big Hugs, Herb
